BRAVO

ponett:

brawl is probably going to go down as the weirdest smash bros game

like it simultaneously wanted to be casual by making everything slower and floatier and wanted to be hardcore by making everything duller and darker and dingier and adding solid snake. there’s a huge story mode but…

Watch it in video

No. 

No this is not funny.

Whether or not it is a joke, I’ve gone onto the channel and there are multiple videos similar to this, which makes me think they’re fake.

Doesn’t matter. 

These videos enforce the idea to parents that yes, the answer to stop your child becoming obsessed with games is to DESTROY them.

No. This is not funny. It is things like this that cause events such as the father who SHOT his daughter’s laptop to bits to occur. These jokes enforce the attitude that people are ‘wrong’ for loving games.

For wanting to play games. 

For some people (including myself), games are a serious escape from horrid realities. The only escape some people can get. The idea that this man (boy?) is wrong for being so upset is disgusting to me?

This is horrific. This is abuse. This is wrong.

This is a sure fire way to get your kids to hate you.

do people not understand how much video games cost?

Video games are a multi-billion dollar business. Some people are good at it. Very good. Do not squander your child’s talents, help them realize them and strengthen them. There are other ways to get your child outside without destroying their games and everything they work for. This won’t solve anything; this will only set them back further.

do this to your childs anything and they will automatically hate you/not trust you

It doesn’t matter what it is

It doesn’t matter if its their video games or if its their smoking pipe

If you just destroy it/throw it away, you are giving no explanation as to why it’s bad/you don’t want them to have it

This can actually psychologically mess a kid up because you teach them that if someone doesn’t like something, they should destroy it

That can lead to some serious problems with socializing with others and other things

dont do that to people

dont

I had a notebook I used to write in all the time. I did that thing that Margo did in Paper Towns where she criss crossed her writing, but I did it so I’d have enough room to write everything. I took it everywhere wtih me and wouldn’t let my parents even start the car unless I had in in my lap. My dad got really annoyed by this and said I needed to throw the notebook away, what was written in it wasn’t important anyway (it was to me, very much so). So one day he took and ran it through the paper shredder.
Ever since I’ve had an intense fear of losing my notebooks and currently have a colletion of 53 blank notebooks and 16 that have been written in because I’ve started hoarding them.
Long story short, don’t fucking do this to your kids. You think it’s harmless and some people even think it’s clever, but you’re really just an asshole and are causing actual psychological problems for your children.

Or like when I was a kid, my parents made me think they were going to throw all my toys away by putting them in garbage bags.

Nearly ten years ago my dad once attempted to destroy my archive of drawings, which at the time was nearly 1000 pages and when I really felt like drawing was going to be a fulfilling part of my life, especially since I wasn’t even allowed games or visiting friends much. To this day I get cold sweat nightmares of my dad destroying everything I’ve worked for, and have invested a substantial amount into protecting it.

Oh fuck I was threatened with shit like YOU DONT WANT TO EXERCISE/WATCH THIS MOVIE THAT GAME GOES INTO THE GARBAGE its shit like this that killed my ability to say “no” to my parents

Granted the video’s a pretty obvious fake, but still it brings back those memories

18:A game you wish your friends knew about?

Alien Soilder and Ranger X are games alot of people to play. Can’t really think of anything else.

19:Which game do you think deserves a revival?

A GOOD Rocket Knight revival would be fucking amazing. Sad that Konami’s original team is gone.

23:Biggest disappointment you’ve had in gaming?

Brawl was such a disappointment. It was such a huge step backwards in everything except character roster. It astounds me that they delayed it two times and yet its ends up being a huge let down.

Maybe I'm just weird or something, but I feel like Sonic 4 is the lesser of two evils compared to Sonic Colors. Colors had a lot going for it, at least for me, but playing the final product and realizing it was nothing like daytime Unleashed left me feeling crushed. I already knew Sonic 4 was a budget game from the start, so the weird inconsistencies like the physics don't bother me as much. Even to this day I would say Sonic 4 is average at worst. But Colors was inexcusable for me.

I don’t especially love Sonic Colors, but it’s worst offense is that for a Sonic game, it really, really drags its feet. It’s too slow, too much like a sluggish platformer and not enough like a Sonic game.

It also takes the heavily scripted nature of a “modern” Sonic game and further drills down in to even more scripting, to where you are only allowed to use certain moves when the game explicitly tells you to use them (quickstep sections, drift sections, technically even the boost). Where’s the fun in that? It’s like playing Bionic Commando and they only give you the ability to grapple in short, 15-second bursts once every couple of levels.

This is literally all I do on AIM anymore.  Nobody contacts me; I contact nobody.  It’s no man’s land.  I only keep the application open to get spammed by chatbots every so often and spout nonsense until they block me.
There are several questions that are raised by this situation:
1) Is this simply a real person on the other end of the internet spamming random AIM users?
2) If this was truly a bot, is it programmed with feelings which I have hurt?
3) Why is Tomkin so cold?
4) Why am I still using AIM?
